Local races slim in Primary by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Since the July 22 county commission meeting, Hendry Count y taxpayers have a better idea o f how much they will be paying in property taxes this coming year. County Administrator Charles Chapman explained that the board agreed to set the tentative millage rate at 8.8209 mills 1.l mills higher than 2013-14. That rate will include $101,000 to the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce for four deputies for six months. The annual millage budget hearings will be in September. The rst will be in Clewiston City Hall on September 9 and the nal hearing will be held in the Courthouse at LaBelle on September 23.

Military training site The board approved a special exception and variance for old HCI site, about 1,100 acres in the extreme southwestern end of Hendry, outside of Immokalee. The State of Florida is selling the property to Blue Spoon, LLC, for the purpose of putting in a large-scale classi ed military training facility. The owner has a similar facility in Copeland in Collier County, Specialized training at the site will include weapons handling and ring. The board approved the special exception for a training facility, temporary structures and “heav y recreational” use (for equipment and vehicle use). Special accommodations will be made for noise, density and buffering of the site. Commissioner Darrell Harris Tentative millage set JUNO BEACH, Fla. – Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) today outlined its 2014 electric system upgrades in the LaBelle area that will bene t local homes and businesses. The company has started work on strengthening and upgrading major power lines and equipment throughout its system to help communities recover faster following major storms while improving everyday reliability for customers. 2014 Work in LaBelle This year’s investment includes upgrades to a main power line serving key facilities in the LaBelle area, such as the LaBelle City Hall and the city wastewater treatment plant. The project strengthens the electric system to better withstand major storms and allow for faster service restoration following power outages. The work includes installing stronger utility poles designed to withstand wind gusts of 130 mph or more. Other improvements in LaBelle this year include clearing vegetation – a common cause of power outages – from 100 miles of power lines. “FPL’s 2014 plan includes more projects to strengthen the electric system than ever before, including the LaBelle area. While severe weather is likely to result in power outages, a stronger electric system means less damage, faster service restoration and more reliable service in all weather conditions,” said Manny Miranda, FPL vice president of power delivery. “This year, we’re investing more than $170 million throughout our system to strengthen the power lines and equipment that serve essential community facilities such as hospitals, re stations, water treatment plants and other facilities that are crucial to people as they recover from a storm.” FPL strengthens power lines in 2014 See FPL — Page 2 See BoCC — Page 2HONORING OUR HEROS

From Friday, August 1 through Sunday, August 3, customers are encouraged to stop by participating restaurants in Collier, Charlotte, Hendry, and Lee counties, as well as two restaurants in North Port (Sarasota County), and drop off supplies in the school bus-shaped boxes in the restaurant lobbies. “As the parent of school-age children, I’m keenly aware of the need for school supplies in our area,” said Steven Nisbet, Jr., who owns and operates McDonald’s restaurants in LaBelle and Clewiston. “We’re excited for this opportunity to give back to our community by collecting supplies to go to children most in need.” Suggested donations include notebook paper, pens, #2 pencils, crayons, glue sticks, rulers, small index cards, highlighters, notebooks and three-ring binders. In Hendry County, all supplies collected will be donated directly to the Hendry Public Schools Foundation. “Over 80% of the students in the Hendry County School District receive free or reduced price lunch,” said Gordon Swaggerty, assistant superintendent of Hendry County School District. “There are times when it may be dif cult for parents to buy needed school supplies, especially if they have several children attending school. Supplies obtained during the McDonald’s School Supply Drive help to ease that additional cost for parents and provide students with the supplies they need for school.” The rst 150 people in each restaurant to donate a school supply will receive a “Be Our Guest” card for a free Happy Meal.

Church Briefs A new National Park Service report shows that over two and a half million visitors to the national parks in South Florida, spent $206 million last year in surrounding communities. That spending supported over 2,700 jobs in South Florida. The report shows numbers speci c to Big Cypress National Preserve included a total of 1,007,789 v isitors that spent an estimated $75,954,700 in South Florida communities and created approximately 997 jobs. “This report shows that park areas are an important part of our lives in the South Florida. They provide open space for people to enjoy and help to build a strong economy.” said Superintendent Pedro Ramos. The new report shows that national parks are signi cant drivers in the economy, returning ten dollars for every one that is invested in the National Park Service. Parks are the primary economic engines of many gateway communities. Visitors come to the parks from all over the world to experience the amazing scenery, natural resources, history and wildlife that the parks provide. Nearby communities provide visitors with services that support thousands of mostly local jobs. Additional jobs are provided by building, educational and natural resource related projects that take place in parks and utilize local companies. “South Florida’s national park areas improve the quality of life for everyone in South Florida by creating jobs, protecting the environment and providing opportunities for people to get outdoors and enjoy nature,” said Don Finefrock, Executive Director of the South Florida National Parks Trust, a nonpro t partner that supports all four parks through fundraising and community outreach. According to the national economic analysis, most visitor spending was for lodging, followed by food and beverages, fuel, admissions, souvenirs and other expenses. The largest job categories supported by visitor spending were for restaurants and lodging. The report shows nearly $15 billion of direct spending by 274 million visitors in communities within 60 miles of a national park. This spending supported more than 237,000 jobs nationally, with most of them found in gateway communities. The spending had a cumulative bene t to the national economy of nearly $27 billion. Combined 2013 report gures include those for Biscayne, Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks, and Big Cypress National Preserve. The total for the four parks is up slightly from the previous year. This is while visitor spending was down by 1 percent nationally.

10 Caloosa Belle July 31, 2014 On Tuesday, July 22, Caloosa Baptist Church prov ided a place for people to get much needed food. It is estimated that more than four hundred people came and stood in line on the property of the church to receive fruit, meat, vegetables, juice, breakfast foods, and other items, all a no expense. The church worked with the organization named after singer/songwriter, Harry Chapin, who brought two very large trucks of food. The Harry Chapin group, located across America, works in conjunction with W almart, and supplies food to the less fortunate. “It was a great honor to help so many people throughout Hendry County,” said Dr. Les Morgan, pastor of Caloosa Baptist. “Harry Chapin and Walmart were a great blessing to many, many people. We were privileged to work with these folks. We had about 30 of our church members helping, and they were very busy the entire time” While a count was not taken of exactly how many people received the food, all of the supplies were given out. Fortunately, Caloosa Baptist had a small food pantry for the needy. All of its contents were likewise emptied but no one went away without food. Both Harry Chapin and Walmart were pleased with the organization of the distribution. Because it went so well, the church was asked to make this a routine event. Caloosa will be hosting another event in the next few months and beyond that as well.

Did you ever go to a wedding reception, birthday party or holiday event and just sit there while the music plays and others are out on the dance oor having a great time? Now you will no longer have to sit and watch others doing w hat they call dancing! Dance classes are being held in the club house at Maple Corners on Whidden Road, just north of LaBelle (directions to be provided). Since starting the classes in 2006, over 150 LaBelle residents and people from as far away as Clewiston and Fort Myers have gone through the paces and learned to “cut a rug” in style. Students in the beginning classes have learned to dance the waltz, fox trot, rhumba, swing and Texas Two Step with a few steps of the polka and merengue thrown in. At the request of the students an advanced class was added a few years ago in which the students were given some additional steps for the dance they had already learned ,along with being introduced to the cha cha, samba and mambo, It’s easier than you think and you will be amazed at your ability after the eight weeks of lessons are over (just in time for all those holiday parties!) In addition to the group classes Diane and Nick have also taught private lessons as well as preparing couples for that special dance on their wedding day. Classes are held on Monday evenings beginning on September 29, 7-8 p.m. Class size is limited to the rst 15 couples, so call to reserve your place in the class at 675-1020.Help the animalsThe Caloosa Humane Society is holding a big yard sale on August 2 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. We have many new items, come shop and support our homeless pets at the shelter.
